Lindsay & Chase

2018-08-06T15:52:33+00:00August 6th, 2018|

We are so excited to feature Lindsay & Chase’s Mount Ida Farm & Vineyard wedding today on the blog! This stunning couple was married at the Lodge at Mount Ida Farm in March of this year.  Since it was March, it was still a little too chilly to have an outdoor ceremony. They said their “I do’s” in the indoor ceremony space, which worked out perfectly! They decided to add in some white drape to soften up the space and to add a personal touch to the room.  They lined the aisle with pink and white flower petals. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the ceremony space was filled with natural light. What we really admire about their wedding was how they incorporated little things that they loved (like Harry Potter) in a subtle and elegant way, without being overbearing. Take a peek at their card table! The reception space was decorated with blushes and creams, it looked truly beautiful. They also added some ceiling drapery as well as a beautiful, lit backdrop for their head table.  Congrats Lindsay & Chase! Enjoy these photos from Meredith Sledge Photography.

Today we are featuring our very first wedding of 2018! Stephanie and Ryan got married at the Lodge on January 6th, 2018. You probably can’t tell from the photos, but it was a bone-chilling 6 degrees on this day! Temperature aside, it was an absolutely perfect day. Everyone was thankful for our gorgeous indoor ceremony spot inside the Lodge. Guests could still enjoy the beautiful panoramic mountain views while staying warm. The large outdoor fireplace was the perfect backdrop as the two said “I do!” We hope you enjoy these photos from Chelsea Schaefer Photography!

Best Groomsmen Wedding Photos

We are always talking about how stunning our brides and bridesmaids are, but what about the boys? So gentlemen, today we want to focus on you. Whenever we receive new photos from a photographer there are a few staple shots that we look for; cake, first look, first dance, toasts, table decor….and what crazy poses our groomsmen did. We went through our treasure chest and pulled some of our favorites and can’t wait to share them with the world. We hope you all enjoy these as much as we did!

Mountain Grove Wedding Ceremony

2018-03-28T18:02:19+00:00March 28th, 2018|

Those who book their wedding at The Lodge are blessed with the gorgeous Mountain Grove ceremony as their outdoor ceremony option. The Mountain Grove ceremony site offers a spectacular 360 degree view. Up on the ceremony site is a large cedar pergola used to shelter the bridal party from guests’ view until it is time to make the grand entrance down the 100 year old grove. While the stunning tree and mesmerizing mountain views are definitely enough, there are a few options for upgrading the ceremony space.  If you’re a Lodge bride looking on how to personalize the Mountain Grove ceremony site, or just looking for some general wedding inspiration…today’s blog post is for you!
